Country music sensation dazzles
In March 31 Issue
By Kim Graham
Times Journal Reporter

Country music newcomer Easton Corbin and his band kept a record crowd on their feet last Saturday night at Russell County Schools Auditorium.

Over 600 Corbin fans stood through the entire concert, singing along to his hit songs and some old familiar favorites.

Susan Melton, director RCS Auditorium, said attendance was the best yet for the concert series.

"I was so excited and shocked to see that large a crowd at the concert," said Julie Beckmann of Russell County.

She said she thoroughly enjoyed the show and expects Corbin to grow in popularity.

"I thought he did a wonderful job," said Beckmann. "He's a real up and coming talent and we're going to hear a lot more from him."

Music enthusiasts Mackenzie Long, Cindy Nevius, and Dorothy Wheatly drove from Danville to catch the show and celebrate Long's 29th birthday.

"We love country music and we love to come to concerts," said Long.

Their first visit to RCS Auditorium left quite an impression on the young women.

 "We've been to many intimate venues and this is the best one yet," Long said.

Toward the end of the show, Corbin invited the audience to the stage, shook hands with folks, and signed autographs from the stage.

Other concertgoers, including the Danville trio, purchased VIP tickets for an opportunity to meet Corbin and have their picture taken with the country star.

 "All in all, response was positive to the Easton Corbin concert," said Melton.

She said Corbin's t-shirts were seen throughout Russell County High School Monday morning.

"We look for shows to suit our family oriented audience base," said Melton. "We've had legendary country with Steve Wariner and legendary bluegrass with Ricky Skaggs."

Plans for future events at the auditorium include Halfway to Hazard, April 30th; Comedian Carly Hurley, May 13th; and another up and coming country music singer, Justin Moore, May 19th.
